Hmm, I don't know;  I was basing it on a memory of building out a ZEO
storage server on a "bare bones" Unix box, and having something during
the build / startup phase barf, complaining about the absence of zlib.

Perhaps I conflated two memories.  I'm pretty sure that *something* in
the Zope codebase requires zlib, but I take Tim's word for it that I
wrongly attributed that dependency to ZODB.

Tres.
